Bob Koshinski to be Master of Ceremonies for this year’s 11th Annual ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE in the Town of Niagara which will begin at 5:30 pm on Saturday, November 7th. 

A major highlight of the ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE is the appearance of Santa Claus who will be on hand to greet the crowd.

A Food Drive will also be part of this year’s NIAGARA ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE.  Volunteers will gather non-perishable food donations from parade spectators for local soup kitchens.  If participants wish, Parade organizers encourage donations the food to their Church Food Pantries and let them know it is on behalf of the Niagara Electric Lights Parade.

The major sponsor for the parade is Republic Services (Allied Waste Industries of Niagara Falls, NY).  Allied Waste owns and operates the Niagara Falls Sanitary Landfill, located at the intersection of 56th Street and Niagara Falls Boulevard.

Last year’s ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE drew several thousand spectators, along with the hundreds who were part of the bands, floats and community groups which took part.

The ELECTRIC LIGHTS PARADE is organized and presented by the Town of Niagara, the Town of Niagara Business and Professional Association, Inc.

Now Showing: StenzTV (Episode 1)

Getch’yer popcorn ready!

The new, revised, all spiffed up and ready for the air-waves – StenzTV!  The half-hour, variety style, some time serious, most of the time not-so-serious side of Niagara Falls and basically, the point of view from one of your average fellow residents, the glass is half full, keep me out of politics, we only live once, let’s all chill the F out, your brother from anotha’ mutha – Yours Truly… ME!

Consider StenzTV the NiagaraHub’s first full “network” show, a combination of elements you read and view on the Hub (The Images of the Day, The Soapbox, Headline Roundup, Food Reviews, Man on the Street, etc.), along with the hometown goodness and trivial nonsensical whatnot that always has been the heart of the website called StenzTV. I’ll be mixing in some local news and headlines, some guests and fun conversation, along with bits of local history and general autobiographical stuff that makes me, me.  My intention is to bring to local Niagara Falls visual media and cable access something that most people haven’t seen before in this area – something different than Mr. or Mrs. Blahblahblah sitting between two ferns on an old couch waxin’ philosophical about the 1965 School Board Budget… yaaawwwwwn! Don’t get me wrong, we will be as low tech, low budget and as crude as the worst of ‘em, but our difference is, we will have soul!  A little sumpthin’ for everybody… or maybe not at all, but hey, I’m givin’ it whirl and having a good time doing so.

This half hour episode is just the beginning – I hope to roll one out every couple months.  Ya know, like the beginnings of all great television shows… from M*A*S*H*, All in the Family, Happy Days to the Price is Right and Family Feud, it’ll be a series kick off to celebrate! Just remember, fish don’t fry in the kitchen, and beans don’t burn on the grill, took a whole of tryin’ just to get up that hill…

StenzTV will be filmed on location and also in front of a live studio audience (of one or two people at most probably!) and will be airing once every couple months or so.  If you want to appear on StenzTV or if you have a great video or segment that you think is a must to add to the next episode, lemme know!  Please give us a call at 716.299.0705 or email us at: theniagarahub@gmail.com
